Apple Watch Series 5

The best-selling smartwatch has received a few subtle upgrades. The stand-out new feature is an always-on screen, which means you don’t have to raise your wrist for the screen to show something: it will still show your watch face or workout details at all times, just dimmed. When you raise your wrist to look at the screen, you can get the display at full speed and full brightness. It means you can read the watch in awkward situations more easily, and others can see your face style at all times. It’s not a huge change, but one that is long, long overdue. That said, it does have some impact on battery life, obviously. There is a better compass and a more advanced altimeter that now shows your absolute elevation (how high you are, and not how much you’ve climbed). While this is a better watch for hikers, there are few new health or fitness features. The watch will warn you if noise gets above 90 decibels, and it can now detect irregular heartbeats.
